A deadline is looming for the company that owns the Pontiac Silverdome.

Demolition is supposed to happen soon, but it appears there are no plans in place. 

The company that owns the Silverdome is supposed to turn in those demo plans by today. So far, we're told only a portion of that plan is complete.

The City of Pontiac says they want to move on. 

The former Lions den, while iconic in Michigan, is a symbol of the past, says Pontiac Mayor Dierdre Waterman. The city previously filed a nuisance suit against the property owner, Triple Investment Group.

The two sides came to an agreement, the owner was supposed to find a contractor for demo work in May and have plans presented by today.

A contractor, we've learned, was hired and approved, but so far, the mayor tells 7 Action News, owners have not complete plans to tear down the Silverdome. 

If the plans are not turned over today, the Triple Investment Group may face fines.
